A Great (saline) Start

Scott Benner

Today Arden started using her OmniPod, though it doesn’t have insulin in it just yet.  We will spend seven days using the pump as we would normally but instead of insulin, saline will be pumped under Arden’s skin.  This “practice” time is meant to get me aquatinted with the pump’s operation before I begin using it to administer Arden’s insulin.  If you’re interested, you can read more about our appointment in Daddy’s Blog. 


Check back here throughout the week for updates as I’ll be trying to keep this information fresh for not just you the reader but also for me.  I think that this blog will be a fantastic resource for people considering a pump.  I also expect it to serve as a referable diary for me.  


Seven days till ‘No more needles’!
